HON. GONESE: I mean now Mr. Speaker. We have a Head of State who was inaugurated; His Excellency the Hon. Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, who is the Head of State and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces in this country. I am saying Mr. Speaker, that in terms of the provisions which I have adverted to, it is my respectful submission.
THE HON. SPEAKER: I am very clear, I am very clear now.
HON. GONESE: You are very clear, yes. So I am saying, at this point in time Mr. Speaker, we have members of the Defence Forces who have been deployed and in my understanding, they are definitely assisting the Police Service. We obviously have the Police Service whose primary responsibility is to maintain law and order. There are circumstances …
THE HON. SPEAKER: I thought you have made your point.
HON. GONESE: Yes, thank you. I thought you wanted me to clarify.
THE HON. SPEAKER: Order, order. I have two observations. Hon. Chinotimba, I had not recognised you; that is one. Hon. Members at the back there, yes, can you stop your tete-a-tete please. The second thing is that you cannot rise before the Chair has responded to the point of privilege.
Yes, I hear you Hon. Gonese – I will engage His Excellency the President and I should be informed accordingly and will advise accordingly.
